Altenew September 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s September 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you arrived here from the talented Keeway Tsao blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my holiday planner notebook:

Blessing Stamp Set

For this holiday planner notebook, I used Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection patterned paper, the new Altenew Blessing Stamp Set and the Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set.

Here’s how I created this notebook:

Place the chipboard on top of the pattern paper, use a number 15 Penblade to cut the patterned paper.

Once the front is done, do the same for the back cover.

Now use the We R Memory Keepers Cinch to put the book together.

Now, stamp each kraft pocket with a different sentiment.

To finish the notebook off, add some tabs so that you know which section of the notebook is which!

You can tuck all of your coupons and receipts into the pockets of the notebook. Everything in one place.

I kept this notebook clean and simple. It allows the recipient to decorate it they way they want.

Let’s take another look:

  1. I really like how you put that book together. It was amazing. I have an old UGA notebook that I use every year for everything. I really am thinking about doing what you did. Thanks!!

  2. This is such a great idea. I usually just use my address book to mark who I send cards to each year, and it’s turned my book into a mess, LOL. I’m definitely going to try this. Thank you.

  3. This is another wonderful release from Altenew with great variety, but I really love those Bountiful Branches and the Blessings stamp set. Clever project!

  4. Oh my goodness Kymona! I was thrilled to see your name on the list of blog participants! Your artwork and creativeness never disappoints! I love your out of the box creative use of the newly released stamp sets! Yay! You’ve totally made my heart happy!

  5. What a great idea! I’ve never tried to make a booklet before, but I think yours is wonderful & sure will be an aid to being organized.

  6. What an fun and different way of using these stamps! I get so focused on cards sometimes that I forget there’s so many other ways to craft. I think seeing posts like this is good for my soul, especially since this notebook is so nicely made. Thank for sharing with us!

  7. Absolutely fabulous Kymona! Love how you added a value and a sentiment for each divider. Another fabulous release! Love the cover plate and poinsettia the most, but the sentiments are growing on me too! Thanks for the inspiration and for all you share!

  8. Hi Kymona, I LOVE your Christmas planner, what a very creative wonderful idea and YES I will make one. I love the idea, it is so cool, I love seeing you on the Altenew blog, you always have such creative ideas like I love when you show the little picture books and how to make them. I do have a WRMK Cinch so I love making Journals and little books, so fun, right!! This was a FUN and AWESOME post, when I do my planner probably not till December knowing my life, lol, I will post it on the Altenew Instagram and copy you in on it so you can see how it came out. Thanks for an AMAZING post today, I really enjoyed it!!!!

  9. Wow Kymona! What a great way to stay organized over the holiday season! Your Christmas Planner is both practical and beautiful 🙂 What a magnificent rose! Thanks for sharing!

    ready for anything. Great idea. thanks for
    sharing. txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com
